I just got back from the gym and am feeling rather healthy, so forgive me for not posting about food (which might make me hungry). Instead, I will post something that might put all who read it off of food for at least the night.
What could that be, you ask? How about a butt bomb? No I'm not making a silly elementary school doody joke, I'm talking about an Improvised Explosive Device jammed into somebody's anus, straight up the rectum.
This is the kind of thing that you see, maybe, on one of these "blank Movie" movies. But turns out it's actually happened. A man shoved a bomb up his ass in hopes of making a successful assassination:
But the al-Asiri case ended very differently from the al-Awfi case. Unlike al-Awfi, al-Asiri was not a genuine repentant — he was a human Trojan horse. After al-Asiri entered a small room to speak with Prince Mohammed, he activated a small improvised explosive device (IED) he had been carrying inside his anal cavity. The resulting explosion ripped al-Asiri to shreds but only lightly injured the shocked prince — the target of al-Asiri’s unsuccessful assassination attempt.
While the assassination proved unsuccessful, AQAP had been able to shift the operational paradigm in a manner that allowed them to achieve tactical surprise. The surprise was complete and the Saudis did not see the attack coming — the operation could have succeeded had it been better executed.
The intended victim was a Saudi Prince. The actual victim was the unsuccessful assassin, who exploded from the inside out.
And I think - why? Why would you stuff a bomb up your butt? Why not just strap it to you? Or swallow it? And then I realize: for those terrorists who aren't quite sold on the "40 virgins in the afterlife" promise, perhaps this is their last dose of pleasure before they meet their maker.
